Belle And Sebastian

Scottish Indie royalty Belle & Sebastian return to Australia in May next year for the first time since their massively successful tour in 2015. With their latest single ‘I’ll Be Your Pilot’ signalling a fresh new wave of activity for the band, the Australian shows wrap up a global tour, with performances confirmed for The Sydney Opera House, Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, Perth’s Astor Theatre and The Tivoli in Brisbane.

To commemorate 20 years since the bands previous multi-EP release – 1997’s ‘Dog On Wheels’, ‘Lazy Line Painter Jane’ and ‘3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light’ – the twee-pop superstars have also announced the release of three more EPs in quick succession this December. All titled ‘How To Solve Our Human Problems’, the first EP will be released on December 8, the second on January 19, and the final instalment landing on February 16, just ahead of their tour down under.

In addition to re-embracing short-form releases, the project finds the group exploring an off-the-cuff, anything-goes ethos, experimenting with sounds, formats and themes.

We are delighted to be coming back to Australia in 2018, with some new songs to play for you.” Said frontman Stuart Murdoch ahead of the upcoming shows down-under.

Belle & Sebastian formed in 1996. They have released nine studio album,  received critical acclaim from outlets including Pitchfork, SPIN, Rolling Stone, NPR, NME and The New York Times and have produced a back catalogue of both critical and cult-status hits that have helped the band sell out venues for over two decades.

The band arrive in Perth on May 2 before heading east for shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Chronixx

Jamaican musician Chronixx is one of reggae’s leading lights, bringing together the traditions of dub, dancehall, ragga, soul and hip hop into his own fusion which has put reggae back on the main stage.

Discovered in 2014 by Jimmy Fallon during a chance meeting during a Jamaican holiday, Chronixx quickly turned heads around the world after performing on his show, with his first EP topping reggae charts in the US, UK and Japan.  With supports for the likes of The Stone Roses, Nas and Lauryn Hill, Chronixx has proven his cross-genre appeal, with his debut album earlier this year ‘Chronology’ hitting the iTunes top 20 in several countries.

The February tour will awaken reggae fans across the country as Chronixx and his band Zincfence Redemption hit stages in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Chronixx said: “I’m so excited to be back performing live in Australia for my fans, where I’ll be performing new tracks from the Chronology record as well as the classics. See you soon!”

Tickets for the tour go on sale this Monday November 13 through www.mjrpresents.com

Squeeze

South London new-wave legends Squeeze are headed for Australia in 2018 for a run of not-to-be-missed shows. With hits like ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Tempted’ and ‘Up The Junction’, Squeeze will bring the soundtrack of the 70s and 80s into full focus with special guest punk poet Dr John Cooper Clarke.

Squeeze first formed in 1973, brought together by an ad in a sweetshop window. By 1977 they had made their recording debut and enjoyed a string of hits which lasted until 1982, the maturity of their songs outliving their initial burst of chart activity on the back of New Wave.

Over the years there have been solo careers and occasional separations, but the Ivor Novello Award-winning act have been a consistent fixture of the UK and US music scenes over four decades, with recent activity including the critically acclaimed album soundtrack to the BBC sitcom ‘Cradle to Grave’ in 2015 and a triumphant return to Glastonbury in 2016.

Their first trip downunder since re-forming a decade ago, Squeeze have never been more vibrant, relevant and on point as they couple their pop sensibilities with poignant lyrics and a live show that’s not to be missed.

The line-up will feature founding member Glenn Tilbrook, long-standing touring members Stephen Large & Simon Hanson, and the new addition of bassist Yolanda Charles and Steve Smith on percussion.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

After visiting Australia for a series of sold out shows in 2013, LA three-piece Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have announced that they’ll once again return for a run of shows to showcase their much anticipated new album, expected in early 2018.

Presented by MJR Presents, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will visit Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth where they’ll be performing a selection of new material as well as crowd favourites from the bands illustrious 19-year, seven album back catalogue, showing why they are one of the world’s most celebrated live bands.

‘Every time we’ve toured Australia something in some way has tried to kill me at one point or another, and always in new and somewhat inspired ways. So I have a great deal of respect for whatever cosmic forces are going on down there. It definitely keeps me on my toes though, which is all you really need to make rock’n’roll I guess.  Two good toes and a reason to keep tappin them.’

-Robert Levon Been / BRMC

Since their debut release in 2001, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have made a name for themselves on a global scale. By fusing together elements of the psych, space rock, noise-pop and classic rock and roll that weave themselves across five acclaimed studio albums, BRMC live shows have often been hailed as events rather than mere gigs; a dynamic showcase of dark, brooding rock mixed with an energetic show you can’t take your eyes off.

One of the biggest names in rap, 50 Cent returns to Australia in 2018 for two massive shows in Sydney and Melbourne, celebrating the 15th anniversary of his seminal album ‘Get Rich Or Die Trying’.

The record that took him from the streets to the top of the charts after being discovered by Eminem and Dr Dre, ‘Get Rich Or Die Trying’ spawned a slew of hit singles including the iconic platinum smash ‘In Da Club’, Billboard chart topper ’21 Questions’ and ARIA #2 P.I.M.P. The album inspired the successful biopic of the same name and kicked off one of the biggest careers in hip hop.

With further hits like ‘Candy Shop’, ‘Ayo Technology’, ‘Outta Control’, ‘My Life’ and more, 50 Cent’s explosive live show will be hitting Sydney’s Parramatta Park and the Melbourne Showgrounds for what is set to be one of the biggest outdoor urban music events of the year.

With his early years growing up in the boroughs of New York, through to a career punctuated by hit singles, screen roles, video games, feuds, violence,  and most importantly a string of albums that brought gangsta rap into the 21st century, 50 Cent is one of the most influential figures in hip hop.

Rapping about drugs, crime, sex, life on the streets and becoming an entrepreneur in his own right, few figures stand taller in the rap world and few albums hold such a beloved place in rap history as ‘Get Rich Or Die Trying’.

These two outdoor shows bring 50 Cent back down under for the first time in a decade. Tickets are on sale from August 3 from www.mjrpresents.com with an exclusive fan pre-sale available from July 28.

Texas

TEXAS ANNOUNCE FIRST EVER AUSTRALIAN TOUR

WATCH ‘I Don’t Want A Lover’

WATCH ‘Say What You Want’

 

With some of the 90s biggest anthems to their name, UK hitmakers Texas are heading to Australia this December for the first time in their 28-year career.

With a new album ‘Jump On Board’, including their new single ‘Let’s Work it Out’, the band continue to release pop classics nearly three decades after they first emerged on the scene with their seminal album ‘Southside’. The album became their first of three #1s and spawned four UK chart hits including the Australian top five smash ‘I Don’t Want a Lover’.

The band’s career soared to even greater heights in 1997 when ‘Say What You Want’ topped charts across the world, resulting in their album ‘White On Blonde’ hitting six times platinum in the UK, bringing their overall album sales to over 40 million across the world over their career.

With their iconic frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri out front, Texas will be bringing all their hits to Australia, the first time they’ve toured Australia in over a decade. With shows across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, the tour brings one of the UKs most important live acts to Australia for a rare night of looking forward and looking back.

PETE TONG

Wednesday 1st November
Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney, NSW

Friday 3rd November
Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne, VIC

MJR Presents is proud to announce that today, legendary DJ and iconic voice of BBC Radio 1 Pete Tong has announced two arena-sized shows for his upcoming Australian tour, with one-off performances at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena and Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl in November this year.

Following the release of the UK number one album ‘Classic House’ as well as a run of sold out shows in the UK, Pete Tong, along with conductor Jules Buckley and a 65-piece Orchestra will hit Australia for the first time this year, armed with their brand new show ‘Pete Tong presents Ibiza Classics performed by The Heritage Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley’.

Blending and re-working iconic anthems from the past 20 years of house and dance music with a full scale orchestra, ‘Pete Tong presents Ibiza Classics performed by The Heritage Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley’ is yet another bold, brilliant move from one of the most influential figures in dance music. With modern, live reworking’s of classic club anthems from Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Eric Prydz, Robert Miles and more, as well as a hand selected list of guests, Tong’s latest foray into arena shows promises to be a dance party like no other.

 The concept for the new show, which came into fruition in 2015 with the launch of BBC Radio 1’s Ibiza Prom at the Royal Albert Hall, is a completely reworked performance for 2017. One part large-scale club show and one part stage performance, ‘Pete Tong presents Ibiza Classics performed by The Heritage Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley’ is a fresh and welcome change for fans of both classic house and modern dance music.

With its infectious, energetic brand of club music reworked by artistic director Chris Wheeler and The Heritage Orchestra, and the acclaimed conductor Jules Buckley at the helm, Pete Tong’s most recent show has already managed to captured the hearts of millions, with sold out shows around the UK, including the legendary The O2 London.

 

ABOUT PETE TONG

From London’s pirate station Radio Invicta to the voice of Radio 1’s prestigious dance programming, Pete Tong has held a commanding presence over the industry for more than two decades. His unique position has earned him a reputation as the global ambassador of dance music.  With an unparalleled ear for new talent, Tong has become the leading tastemaker of the electronic generation. While he’s known publicly as Pete Tong the DJ, behind the scenes, he’s an industry icon.

ABOUT THE HERITAGE ORCHESTRA

The Heritage Orchestra is the orchestra that rocks out arenas, messes with other people’s music, and keeps orchestral tradition in the cellar. Since 2004 this renegade ensemble has collaborated with Aphex Twin, Tim Minchin, The National, Ben Folds, Anna Calvi, and regularly performs on the world’s most renowned stages from the Sydney Opera House to the Royal Albert Hall.  They are unique in their use of sound, visual, and electronics, and they don’t play classical music; an approach that has defined them one of the most progressive and vibrant large ensembles around.

ABOUT CHRIS WHEELER


Chris Wheeler produces cutting-edge orchestral shows around the world working with artists such as Björk, Giorgio Moroder, Squarepusher, and Goldie. Chris’s understanding of modern production values incorporating new technology, visual art, sound design, and classical performance, fuels his fresh stance on orchestral performance.

ABOUT JULES BUCKLEY


Jules Buckley has made a name for himself as one of Europe’s most in-demand conductors of hip contemporary orchestral projects. Currently the Chief Conductor of Holland’s renowned Metropole Orkest and the Musical Director of the UK’s Heritage Orchestra, his daring approach to crossing and linking musical genres has brought him widespread acclaim. Buckley’s recent highlights include acclaimed collaborations with Gregory Porter, Tori Amos, Laura Mvula, Goldie, Markus Stockhausen, Michael Kiwanuka and UK house music duo Basement Jaxx and two Latin Grammy nominations.
